Yeah, when I said that (buy a Subaru) I was referring to 1st hand
experience with my old '88 DL 5 speed FWD and my wife's old '88 GL10 Turbo
AWD both of which we haven't had now for many years. At the time of their
sale, both cars ran well with no problems other than my DL which had a bad
habit of dying for no apparent reason, sitting for 5 or 10 minutes, and
then, once restarted running well until the next occasion. Solved (never
did find out what it was) when I had it in the dealership, nothing had
happened, I was about to drive it away, when my left foot hit something and
it died. The techs looked at each other with a "knowing glance" took the
car inside, 10 minutes later it was fixed and the problem never occurred
Just adding to the data points,
